I have a 98 ram 1500 long box 2wd with the 5.2 and automatic. The tranny is pretty bad and i really want to convert it to a 5 speed. I am good mechanically i am just wondering how extensive this is going to be. I know ill need a clutch and linkage and different brake pedal at least.
Will the driveshaft bolt right up to a 5 speed and will the computer have to be changed?
If someone who has done this project could help me out i would really be appreciative.
Thanks very much.
